About the property

Downstairs apartment with separate entrance. Sleeps 2 -4.

Experience the beauty and old fashioned splendor of living downtown. Walk to the best dining, shops and entertainment Hendersonville has to offer! With the many events that Hendersonville has on the street you will only be steps away and you won't even have to look for a parking space.

This historic home offers a very relaxing stay. The large front porch has rockers and porch swing for morning coffee... or ... grab some afternoon sun on the back deck. Spacious living areas and gas log fireplace allow for relaxing while reading a good book or family get togethers. Families love the game room which has pool table, darts and ping pong. WIFI and cable TV bring other entertainment possibilities. When you're bored with emails, walk across the street and check out the public library. If that doesn't work, take a step back in time, slide into the ole claw foot tub and soak until the world catches up. The kitchen is large and well equipped for when you just want to stay in. Master suite and claw foot tub bath with shower are upstairs. Two bedrooms, game room, spa tub bathroom and additional living areas and kitchen facilities are downstairs. The Bungalow is available year round to rent for a weekend or a week, perfect for a romantic getaway, or whatever the Doctor orders. Hope to see you soon.

Why Anne Hansley chose Hendersonville

This Buncombe street beauty is just a few short blocks from Main St., Hendersonville, where numerous shops, restaurants, and year round street festivals provide options and entertainment, without moving your car. Many other attractions are not far from this historic home, including the Blue Ridge Parkway, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, the Biltmore Estate and much more. But then, why leave the bungalow? Plan your day on the wrap around, sunlit porch over morning coffee, and relax in the hot tub on the back porch after a day of hiking or sightseeing in WNC. Maybe just stay put and relax in old world charm and romance? Award winning garden, comfy surroundings, antique furnishings, spacious rooms, high ceilings and plenty of light invite you to stay and relax.

I found that my stay at the Bungalow was relaxing and superb. The house has a wonderful calm vibration and the landlord was very helpful. I also found that the website was very accurate and the photos reflected the amenities. The property was very well maintained and the garden was beautiful. I was able to pick blueberries right off the porch! This is a beautiful place and I definitely will be back. Thank you!

Close to town but could be cleaner

  • 4 of 5

It was very easy to get everywhere in town from this house, which was wonderful. All of the reviews and description I was sent made reference to the upstairs of the house, but that was not included in the rental. The basement apartment had everything we needed but didn't seem to have been cleaned well from the last renters.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kristen. Glad you enjoyed. Very sorry if the cleaning was not up to par. Would be great if you have any specifics to share. This cleaning lady is new to my properties and I have spoken to her about the issue. Thanks for the feedback. Anne

Good Times

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house. It was close enough to walk to downtown and had plenty of room to spread out, The front porch was awesome. My one complaint is that there is no TV in the game room.

The house is very cute and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a long weekend to attend a wedding in Hendersonville, the house was so cute and very comfortable. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. We really enjoyed sitting on the front porch. The house reminded me of my grandmothers house with all the modern conveniences. Thanks Anne for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Cute little bungalow within walking distance of downtown

  • 4 of 5

Seven family members and I traveled To Hendersonville in late July for a family wedding and stayed here. Because we were only there for 2 nights, Thursday and Friday for my wife and I and Friday and Saturday for my wife's family from Michigan, we didn't use either kitchen. We either ate downtown, a short three block walk from the house or at the wedding related functions. We did eat breakfast around the dining room table Saturday morning consisting of sweet rolls from the bakery downtown.

Since there were 8 of us, renting a house was much more economical and allowed us to spend some family time together instead of renting several rooms in a hotel . Since my wife and I lived in a house built in 1904 for 15 years, the fact that the house is old and refurbished was not a factor. We looked at it as part of the charm of an older home. Our first night there we took inventory and noticed there were only 6 bath towels. My wife called Anne and the next morning by the time we had returned from breakfast downtown, she had more bath towels delivered to us. We didn't have the chance to use the game room for anything other than sleeping due to our tight schedule, but it looked like a good place to spend some quality family time. Really cool shower downstairs by the way.

Hendersonville's main street is really neat, with lots of nice places to eat and little shops to browse. Parking could have been an issue, but not for us, since it was a short walk.

A couple of issues: When we walked into the lower level it was about 60 degrees. I found two thermostats downstairs, but no matter what I did the cold air continued. It was chilly upstairs too, but one of the thermostats upstairs responded when I moved the temperature up. 2. Lots of standing water in old flower pots in back with the mosquitoes to go with them.

We did spend some time on the front porch while waiting for our Michigan relatives to arrive on Friday and it was very nice. Mosquitoes not a factor out front.

If we had a group travel under similar circumstances to Hendersonville we would stay here again .

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and feedback. Will take care of the flower pots immediately. As for the thermostats, there is only one that controls the AC and that is upstairs. The others are for heat only. I will put a note on the frig to that effect and close up some more of the downstairs vents to equalize more. Anne
